I recently had my SXLAO of 37 years seize up on me..sad day! (Data plate= LOT: D6086, SN# 04554809). My saw looks like the rear saw in this photo(http://img31.imageshack.us/i/homelite1m.jpg/)
I went to my trusty parts list (attached) and ordered a piston (A68438), Cylinder (A69714), CR (A53477B), and associated rings bearings etc. When the cylinder came in from Chainsawr.com I checked the bore with the old piston only to discover that the one I ordered has a 44.4mm bore whereas my saw has the 46mm bore.
I thought all of the SXLAO's had the 46mm bore but apparently the older ones had the 44.4mm bore. Now I'm worried that the parts list I'm working off is not the right list for my saw. If so where could I find the right part numbers?
Can any of you guys shed some lite on this for me? And, since the stroke is the same could I use the 44.4mm piston and cylinder on my saw with no ill effects?
